Have You Considered a Mini Split System for AC?

Ductless AC or mini-split systems have been around for a while but I haven't really heard much about them until recently. Which is odd given the fact I live in a city like Sacramento where temperatures climb to 115 in the summer. Homeowners in some lower-income neighborhoods don't even have a window AC unit, and I don't know how they do it. Well, older homes with plaster walls offer some insulation from the sun, but still. It must get really hot.

But the thing I have discovered while investigating mini split systems is there are many configuations and styles. You can set it up in every room or just a few, depending on layout. It's efficient, quiet, dependable and inexpensive.

You can read more about and see the photos of installation in my personal blog today at this link: Should You Buy a Mini Split System in Sacramento?
